Thevitia peruviana
Lucky Nut Tree
Apricot Peach

Under bright blue skies all across the tropical world grows a small tree or upright shrub with long, slender, willow-like, forest green leaves. Lovely peach colored clusters of funnel shaped flowers peek out from this forest of foliage, giving the plant a look of spring when in bloom. A fast grower and hardy without protection outdoors in zones 9+ otherwise protect this widely adaptable tree. The plant can be trained to a single trunk and used for a wide range of uses including, bonsai, standard specimen as well as the greenhouse. It makes the perfect patio container plant and I grow mine as a tropical houseplant as long as it is brought indoors for the winter providing a tropical look almost anywhere! Foliage is damaged at 28 degrees F but will come back. Protect from further cold.

As with any plant, caution should be exercised about leaves or seeds and whether or not the plant is meant to be ingested. Seller is not responsible for buyer’s use of plant. This plant is known to contain poisonous characteristics and should be used for ornamental purposes only.
